Late dinner in Battery Park area
I am going to a screening in Battery Park on a weekday, and won't get out until around 9pm. Any late dinner recommendations? I'd prefer to be within walking distance (~15 minutes) or to stick near a subway. Nothing expensive or heavy since it'll be so late, but something of great quality would be nice! Thanks!
The challenge in lower Manhattan is that if the traffic is light, restaurants that say they are open 'till 11, tend to start closing earlier (sometimes alot earlier); but here goes. The best of FiDi area (10-15 minute walk from BP) are SHO Shaun Hergatt on Broad and Wall & Water (name gives the location). Check their menus to see if they fill the bill, for they can deliver memorable meals. Another possibility is the Vintry on Stone Street; mainly wine, scotch and small plates. (Incidently, Stone Street, the street, not the saloon, is open VERY late; about a dozen restaurants and no one would call the food there extraordinary, but there is a long block with outdoor seating and alot of good people watching). Battery Gardens and Gigino are also very close by, but their food (and service) leaves ALOT to be desired. There are several steak chains in the area (Bobby Van's, Capitol Grill, etc.) if that is your bill of fare. None of these is more than a 15 minute walk from BP.
